Club Statement

@Everton

Everton will continue to work closely with the French and Merseyside Police, in conjunction with the Club's own security team, to better understand the two isolated but serious incidents that occurred in Lille ahead of our Europa League fixture this week. 

All available reports suggest that the first incident, on the night before the game, was an unprovoked and planned attack by local youths. 

The second incident, early in the afternoon on matchday, in the City's main square, quickly escalated into unwelcome and unpleasant scenes. Events then, equally quickly, returned back to normal with well-mannered and good-natured celebrations that were evident throughout the Club's stay in Lille. The Club will now work with all authorities to find out what happened and why.

In order to gather as much detail as possible on the incidents and on other issues encountered by fans, the Club has provided an online feedback form below.

Fans will be required to enter their name and customer number to submit feedback.

Estimates of the number of travelling Evertonians went as high as 10,000 and fans received high praise from the Club, players and manager for their remarkable support at Stade Pierre-Mauroy.
